Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2 Timothy 2:22 (NIV)

‘Flee’ doesn’t mean to just not partake in impure desires, it means to turn the other way and RUN! I heard a saying that rings in my head every time I’m watching a movie that maybe shows too much skin, or I’m hanging around with guys who are being dishonest and unethical. That saying is; “If you don’t want to sin, stay out of sin’s orchard”.

If you are trying to lose weight, don’t hang out at a Dairy Queen. The ‘evil desires of youth’ will destroy our hearts and peace. Instead, pursue God’s stuff and we will develop that inner fulfillment and joy.


Heavenly Father, give us the strength to FLEE. Also, to be convinced that sin is never worth it. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
